This Week in Games: Aug 5 – 10


Build a Cyborg-Zombie Army, Brawl on Rooftops during a Hurricane, Take-down Vampires in the Australian Indie Damsel and SCUMM adventures with a talking cat are all ahead of you this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Tuesday brings the big title for the week with the Age of Empires but with more Sci-Fi of Age of Wonders: Planetfall. This strategic turn-based empire builder lets you progress using one of 6 unique factions including Cyborg-Zombies, Dinosaur riding Amazons and more. It drops for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Tuesday.

On Thursday the fast-paced Australian Indie Developed Damsel finally makes its way to Xbox One. You play as Damsel, armed with a special shotgun to take down the Vampire hoard in this comic book stylised platformer.

Also on Thursday for PC gamers is the Smash Bros style Run Roll Rumble out on Steam. Up to 4 players can brawl it out via Couch coop or against Internet randos in a variety of cityscapes during floods, storms and more. It looks pretty slick so well worth checking out.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week combines our love with all things Lovecraft with classic SCUMM style adventure gaming for Gibbous – A Cthulhu Adventure. Made in Transylvania, switch between characters Day of the Tentacle style take control of the gumshoe, the librarian or the talking cat named Kitteh. It’s out on Steam this Wednesday.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
